During Spring 2016, CIHT and TRL held a successful joint Learned Society evening event on automated vehicles.
We are following up again on the topic of automated vehicles focusing more on some of the practical implications – for example, what might they mean for pedestrian/cyclist movements?
Given the focus on autonomous vehicles at Greenwich and the GATEway Project led by TRL, Professor Nick Reed, Academy Director at TRL will provide further insights into this research project.
The event is kindly sponsored by:
Nick is Academy director at TRL, where he is responsible for ensuring the technical quality of TRL’s research outputs, supporting the academic development of TRL staff and managing TRL’s engagement with stakeholders in industry and academia on programmes of collaborative research.
Nick joined the Human Factors and Simulation group at TRL in January 2004 following post-doctoral work in visual perception at the University of Oxford. He has led a wide variety of studies using the full mission, high fidelity car and truck simulators with a number of published articles, conference papers, and appearances in national and international media.
Nick also championed work in the area of vehicle automation at TRL, culminating in his technical leadership of the GATEway (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment) project – a flagship UK Government project to investigate the implications of the introduction of automated vehicles in the urban environment.
Lola's work lies at the intersection between the built environment and digital infrastructure/new technologies having a strong urban innovation and sustainable development component.
Lola spearheads cutting-edge urban innovation projects for the development of Greater London. These projects explore the potential of digital and new technologies to optimise the use of resources, to improve the sustainability and resilience of the built environment and its communities, and to lead the transition to a low-carbon future and the green economy.
Lola’s academic career includes graduate degrees in MSc Urban Economic Development (University College of London, 2013) and in MSc City Design and Social Science (London School of Economics, 2010), as well as a Masters and Bachelor degree in Architecture from Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid, 2005. Prior to joining the DG Cities team, Lola worked in international architectural and urban planning practices such as Foster + Partners, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), and Foreign Office Architects, where she led design teams and projects in different continents and development contexts (ie. UK, France, Spain, Switzerland, Denmark, Turkey, United States and Nigeria), including Birmingham New St Station, Ravensbourne College and, as part as the RSHP team, developed a set of policy and design guidance for “le Grand Paris”, commissioned by former French President, N. Sarkozy.
